election victory, president obama's already been on the phone with top democrats and republicans in congress, urging them to compromise before america falls off the fiscal cliff. what's that? long-term unemployment benefits and the 2% payroll tax cut expiring, a big cut in medicare payments, and your taxes going up january 1, if congress doesn't act. plus, another $500 billion in cuts at the pentagon. boeing, the military's second largest supplier, already announced a second round of executive layoffs. >> nobody wants to see this fiscal cliff without a deal, because the cuts are severe and the tax increases are severe and so we've got to find a path forward. >> reporter: on capital hill leaders signaled compromise. >> compromise is not a dirty word. i want to work together, but i want everyone to also understand you can't push us around. >> i'm not suggesting we compromise on our principles, but i am suggesting that we commit ourselves to creating an atmosphere where we can see common ground where it exists and seize it. >> reporter: post election, the same president, the same ba

headaches for re-elected president obama. his second term will oversee the withdrawal of u.s. combat troops from afghanistan, scheduled to be complete by the end of 2014. nhk world's hideki yui outlines the challenges those two countries pose for obama's next term. >> reporter: afghanistan and pakistan are two nations affected by the u.s. fight against terrorism. both expect the obama administration to shift its focus during a second term to rebuilding the economy back home. at the height of the u.s. deployment, about 100,000 american troops were stationed in afghanistan. the number has fallen to less than 70,000, and further reductions are planned. many in afghanistan welcome that trend, but others voice concern that it could throw the unstable country back into civil war. dialogue between the united states and the taliban was suspended earlier this year. during the election campaign, obama distanced himself from the issue to avoid being branded weak on terrorism. with the election behind him, the president may become more flexible. here in pakistan, relations with washington are expected

, 2008, barack obama got elected and the republicans lost even more seats in the house and in the senate. and with george w. bush long gone and john mccain beaten really badly and with the republicans reduced to minorities this small in congress, there was a really pressing question. after the '08 election, after the last presidential election, of how and whether the republican party would be able to rebuild itself. and obviously, they did, right? they did great in the 2010 elections, even after doing pretty badly in this current election, they still hold on to the house. but starting to feel like those zb segments that we did on this show after the '08 presidential election, those segments, gop in compile, it seems like they're still relevant to understanding what the republican party is now going through. my favorite part, we did these animations to make visual metaphors out of the republican party's sad lossness. those were kind of great. ♪ one is the loneliest number that you'll ever know ♪ ♪ you can go your own way ♪ go your own way ♪ don't ask how ♪ as cold as ice >> i

in the 2012 races and the result, status quo. obama re-electioned, democratic senate and republican house. overwhelming majority of the spending benefited conservatives. 69% compared to just 28% in support of liberals. but the results were not pretty. karl rove's american crossroads spent $104 million, success rate, 1. 3%. u.s. chamber of commerce spent $33 million. success rate 6.9%. and as for sheldon adelson, a friend tells the "wall street journal" he will keep on keeping on. quote, he wouldn't lose sleep over the amount of money he spent, the person said, adding he is disappointed but not discouraged. >> of course not. it's four hours of the casinos in macao. >> not go. are for giving. the billionaire donors are here are lived one operative told "the huffington post." there is holy hell to pay. karl rove has a lot of explaining to do. i don't know how you tell donors we spent $390 million and got nothing. if you were to spend $354 million on a race and got nothing, what would your next move be? >> i wouldn't spend it again. what happened here i don't think the money was spent well. i
